Company Summary

We manufacture, and sell a patented solution for lifting patients at a trauma scene from ground to gurney or for carrying immobilized patients up or down stairs. The EZ LIFT Rescue System improves the ergonomics of the patient lift with handles that extend from the board for lifting and retract when not in use. This allows Rescuers to lift from a safer position, reducing injuries and extending careers.
